Tabbed by: Connor O.
Tuning: Open D (DADF#AD)



Dan plays the slide with a lot of vibrato, and then returns. By return, I 
mean he'll slide D|--3/5--|, vibrato it, and then bring it back. So like
D|--3/5vvvv\3--|. Make sure to mute the string before taking the slide off.
Also make sure that, while sliding, you mute the D string with your remaining
fretting fingers to reduce buzzing.

Comment or message any ideas or corrections. Please rate my tab. If you've got
problems with the tab, I'd encourage you to contact me with those problems so I
can fix the tab or provide advice for playing. Don't just give me a poor rating
and not give me any feedback. The idea is for us all to work together to create
a perfect finished product. This tab just represents the best I can do. It's 
definitely up for peer review.



Key:
where # represents a fret number

#h# - hammer
#p# - pull
/ \ - slides, up and down respectively.
#b# - bend from normal note up to achieve bended note.
#r# - release bend from bended note to normal note.
#b  - a curl. just a slight bend.
=== - under boxes, represents the use of a guitar slide

Exactly like the previous verses

Well now heal me, heal me with your charm
Your touch keeps me hanging on

Exactly like the previous bridge minus one riff at the end

This tab is perfect I don't know what the hell the rating is about.

Yes, I think the original is Open D and not Drop D like some others I've seen. It can be played somewhat in Drop D, but it does not seem the best option. Nice job.
